Experimental and Theoretical Probability Part 2
This the second part of the series of posts on Experimental and Theoretical Probability.
In the first part of this series, we used a spreadsheet to simulate the rolling of dice 1000 times and automatically recorded the sums. We have observed that the sum frequencies are not evenly distributed (see Figure 1).
In rolling the two dice 1000 times, for example, we rolled a seven 156 times, while we only rolled a two 29 times. Well, we want to think that this is just a coincidence, so maybe we could try it one more time. » Read more
